Training and Networking session #3 with WLOUNGE: 29 November, from 9h30 to 13h00
Become a master of creative pitching and tell your story in front of a jury of investors
To raise an investment round, sell a new product or even hire new employees, you will always have to pitch. And we know that preparing and presenting a pitch can be a bit intimidating! That’s why we want to provide you with the EIC Women Leadership Programme’s Training #3 on “Creative Pitching”. During this session, you will learn about innovative pitching strategies and structures, acquire winning skills to develop your best speech and leave better prepared to attract investors to your company.
But there is more! In the second half of the session, you will have the chance to practice the tips and tricks you learned during the training. We will give you the unique opportunity to pitch your product and solution to a group of high-level investors from the WLOUNGE network.
Register here (registrations are open until 26 November).
